This New Pumpkin Spice Latte Hard Seltzer From Busch Could Be The Holy Grail Of Fall Drinks
Published in Aug 2019 / Updated in Oct 2021
Fall is coming soon, and that means more Pumpkin Spice Lattes for us. If you like hitting Starbucks on your way to work every morning, for that deliciously sweet caffeine, or you enjoy kicking back with a nice drink of hard seltzer after your work shifts, you're going to love this news.
Busch might be introducing a "Pumpkin Spice Latte Super Hard Seltzer." That means you'll probably be able to buy this drink soon. We know, we're losing our minds too.
1. This Is The Best Drink Release Announcement Ever!
Busch is a beloved brand due to its incredible bear products. But the company recently announced it might "change" its brand name to 'Busch Latte' and are going to bring out the "Basic Edition" drink of a Pumpkin Spice Latte Hard Seltzer. And the internet went crazy.
2. Pumpkin Spice Latte Super Hard Seltzer Apparently Has 17 Percent ABV
That means, you can actually get drunk from drinking this beverage, and it's probably the first time you'll get tipsy off a latte.
But we would recommend you stick to your usual Starbucks while going to work and skip this Pumpkin Spice Latte Super Hard Seltzer. We wouldn't want you to get fired.
Just for comparison, White Claw Hard Seltzer's ABV is measured at 5 percent, and a regular Busch Beer has a 4.3 percent ABV. Four Loko also recently made headlines, announcing the release of their hard seltzer with a 14 percent ABV.
3. Or Perhaps This Was Just A Joke?
Now, we hate to kill the dreams and hopes of fellow pumpkin spice lovers but to be fair, Busch's initial posts on Facebook and Instagram advertised the drink.
They shared a photo of the new drink captioned, "Introducing the hardest seltzer in the game. So hard, it's soft." But the posts have since been deleted.
It' not April Fools' Day, but something is telling me this might have been a cruel joke, considering the company did a similar thing in 2018.
Last year, the company announced it's releasing a new item for us, but it didn't. It changed its name to Busch Latte to make fun of all of us, the die-hard pumpkin spice latte fans.
So, sadly, this might be the brand playing with our minds and hearts, yet again. I refuse to get my hopes too high.
Of course, hard seltzer would hardly be the weirdest pumpkin spice flavor to appear this year. While many reports claim Busch's drink was just a mere joke, Pumpkin Spice Spam is real, and it's not that bad apparently.
4. What Would A Pumpkin Spice Latte Hard Seltzer Taste Like?
Beyond my initial excitement, I still do wonder if Pumpkin Spice Latte Hard Seltzer would have been any good to us if it was a real thing.
But to be honest, Pumpkin Spices Lattes have an acquired delicious taste of all times. So, making it cold and serving it together with alcohol can be a recipe for disaster.
Or maybe we're all just better off keeping the two drinks separate and enjoy them for their own unique tastes.
